Laura and Dave are most inspired by old stuff, and their greatest treasures are the refurbished printing presses in their workshop. For their line of paper goods, they draw inspiration from the collection of vintage ephemera. Product packaging, advertisements, pulp magazine illustrations and war propaganda are all fair game. After an initial sketch, every design is translated into a digital form to create a photopolymer plate for printmaking. The plate is then locked into the press and inked, to create hundreds of identical pieces, the same way newspapers were printed in the early 20th century. The process yields perfect copies of the duo’s original work, and lots of them, meaning they can create high-quality art that’s affordable for everyone.
